Ted Haggard has been chastised by his overseers for his pleas for funds to underwrite his living expenses and college studies. Here’s a statement from the story in Christianity Today:
“Ted Haggard’s recent request for money to keep his family afloat while he attends school was “inappropriate” and “unacceptable,” according to a statement Wednesday by the group that oversees the former president of the National Association of Evangelicals.”
Instead, he will be seeking secular employment, not ministry. Although, he is still enrolled in classes to pursue a counseling degree.
This is a good development in the story. I’m glad his overseers are not just a false front that only gives the impression that he’s being held accountable, but are actually involved with him. God bless them. It sounds like they’re getting a workout with him.
